Best Cookies For Arena And Guild Battle 

In Guild battle, you will have to take down a massive dragon with your teammates and it will take multiple attempts for you to win the battle. Therefore, it is important that you have the best cookies from our tier list for the Cookie Run Kingdom so you can take on the Guild battle and the arena mode efficiently.  

Ambush Cookies 

For effective ambush cookies, Vampire Cookie and Black Raisin Cookie are strong choices with powerful attacks.

  • In the early game, Sorbet Shark Cookie is also a great ambush option.
  • Vampire Cookie’s Vampirism Ability allows for health-draining attacks and deals 15% damage to enemies when healing, providing better survivability against Dragons.
  • Black Raisin Cookie’s Shadow Watcher ability deals significant damage to Dragons.
  • In PvP modes, Sorbet Shark Cookie’s Shark Splash ability makes it one of the best cookies, earning a top spot in our tier list.

Bomber Cookies 

The only bomber cookie that will last in the Guild battle, is the Poison Mushroom cookie that can deal a lot of damage to enemies. The attacks that poison mushroom cookies possess are not only good for Guild battles but also for arena battles. 

Magic Cookies  

We suggest using Licorice Cookie as a magic cookie for the Guild battle as the licorice servants the cookie can produce will take down any enemy you are facing. The Licorice cookie is not only the best cookie for Guild battle, but they can also do great in Arena Mode as well. 

Support Cookies 

For the support cookie, we will recommend you use the Pomegranate Cookie as her magic powers Pomegranate Magic will allow her to buff all her allies and restore their health as the battle progresses. Also, the Pomegranate Cookie can increase the power of her allies by 20%. 

Ranged Cookies  

Rye cookie is a good cookie for ranged attacks and the Final Showdown ability of the cookie can deal a lot of damage to enemies. Also, you can increase the Rye cookie’s attack speed for a short period of time and deal heavy damage to a single target. 

Cookie Run Kingdom Tier List Criteria

Our Tier List has taken a lot of time and work to create. Each character’s abilities and skills to succeed in gameplay were thoroughly researched. This Tier List was made to assist newbies to the game in selecting the best Cookie for them.

In fact, we strive to create tier lists that are as neutral as possible, based on the character’s combat capability and potential in the battle arena.
